Three weekends ago we attended the International convention of Jehovah’s witnesses. Participants and guests came from all over the world and interestingly wore their national costumes. Japanese kimono, Mexican sombrero and mariachi, Kenyan dashiki and kitenge, Indian sari, Philippine barong tagalog and baro’t saya, Austrian/Bavarian tracht and dirndl, the Netherlands dutch cap and sabot were all present!

It was a wonderful experience seeing people from all walks of life, of different color, language and race united in worship.Though it was held in a stadium, there were no riots nor trash that you’d usually see after a sports event. I was impressed!
